This was exactly the case yesterday evening, when a friend invited me to a media dinner to try the new menu at a newly redesigned Atwood. After a long work day, I was able to get there on time since I didn’t have to dwell on what to wear.
Atwood is located in the Chicago Loop at the Alise hotel, it’s a great spot for both visitors and afterwork drinks! Actually one of my favorite cocktails is appropriately named “The Conference Call.”
Speaking of the Alise hotel, the building was once home to Al Capone’s dentist and the original door still exists on the 6th floor. As it turns out, the dentist was later discovered to actually be a drug dealer and it’s suspected that the room was actually a façade for Capone’s “business” ventures.

I’m a minimal animal. I like to keep things clean and simple with one element of surprise. These barely there, clear strap heels are what minimal dreams are made of. They are a simple “go-to” for any look wether it be a dress or jeans. The search for clear heels that were “more Kim K […]
Confession: I don’t take a multivitamin. It’s not because I don’t believe in supplementing what your body needs and your diet can’t provide. It’s more so because multivitamins contain a limited number of specifically selected vitamins and minerals which are often not even derived from natural sources (aka: made in a test tube). Not […]
Denim Skirt (another similar here) | Sweater | Sunnies | Sandals Jean skirts are so nostalgic for me! They remind me of my sorority days where the uniform was a denim skirt, Theta tee (where my KAO’s at?!) and UGG boots, colored of course! 😂 Fast forward about 10 years and much like denim overalls, jean skirts are […]
